GUYS

I'm like really panicking here as I look at how much money i'll be left with weekly minus accommodation costs.

I've worked out that i'll have 25.26 to spend on food, nights out (doubt i'll be having many on this budget hah )

I applied for crown place single as my first choice, and thats the cheapest of my choices at 124.95 a week.... I got top levels of student finance too, is anyone in the same situation as me?

:eek:

I think I really messed up on the calculations, I'm awful at maths but I did it a silly way when looking at how much i'll have on my first term.

Basically on the 24th September I'll get my grant payment of £1129.00 and the loan payment of £1274.46
so 1129.00 + 1274.46 = 2403.46
I have16 weeks until my next installment comes into my bank, all 16 weeks need rent paying for (apparently we pay rent over Christmas break? )
124.95 x 16 = 1,999.20

so 2403.46 (grant and loan) - 1999.20 = 404.26

404.26 - 16 = £25.26


I've probably really embarrassed myself with that wrong formula but yeah, I'm very worried. Specially baring in mind that this is my cheapest accommodation, Vine Court single is something over £130 and Crown Place double is something in between :eek:

Oh ****!!!
Just realised you are absolutely right, Now I know where I messed up :/
So basically I'm going to receive £1129 grant and £1191 loan in the first term :/
What i did was total amount of Grant + Loan which was £6997 for me
Then subtract the Rent from the overall total and divide the rest of the money between 39 weeks
Looks like me and you may be in the same boat
Remember though apply for as many jobs as possible
That is what I'm planning.
**** now I'm really really worried about it.....

You can always reject your accommodation at Crown Court and apply for accommodation elsewhere. It works out cheaper tbf and there's many other options. Look here:

http://www.liverpoolstudenthomes.org/Accommodation

Some even have bills included so if you are worried about your finances, just rent elsewhere for cheaper and you'll get a few more nights out and more to spend on food. Hope that helps!

Anyone know what the word 'Studio' actual means for Crown Place?

The description/video are annoyingly unhelpful.

It says 'self-contained Studios available', but that's as far as it goes in its explanation.

its basically when you have your own room, kitchen, bathroom and small living room area. yes, I agree the website needs to update its pictures.

I THOUGHT I GOT THAT WRONG WAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA HHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH H

Yeah at first I did the add up accommodation cost over 39 weeks and then take that away from total loan and grant and then divide by 39, then I was looking at £60 a week :/
I have no savings either...

If I'm correct, Liverpool has the bursary too which every student receives? I think it's about £2,200 if you're receiving the highest amount from SF!

When I rang up that only begins to be processed in November though Living off £20 a week until then (assuming I only spend £20 total during freshers including food etc) will be hell 😩
